The two threads I started regarding "high end kit" or "14in ft"...those threads are dealing with the whole mess. It is long and drawn out.

I can tell you that I loved drum world and then they totally left me out to dry during multiple issues. The final straw was when I called them to inform them that I had a myriad of problems with the collector's kit and I needed help. They didn't ask me what those problems were or to see the kit and just said they would get back to me. They never got back to me. Seven days later, (and this story is very long) I got in contact with a lawyer for the first time in my life about consumer protection and then called them. Upon hearing my voice, it was apparent they were dodging me as they said "oh, sorry, forgot to call you back. DW isn't going to do anything about the kit."

Now as I said, they never asked me what the problems were or to look at the kit. So how could anyone make that decision? I informed them I had a lawyer. Two hours later, the whole kit was getting replaced. The story is a good read in those threads though :)

Bottom line, I had to cut drum world out of the mix. John Good of DW called me personally after I sent him a letter and is taking care of me. And that wasn't the only issue I had with Drum World not looking out for me as a customer. I have many stories. As I said, I've never even had close to that experience shopping for anything else. So, just a fair warning to anyone.

Personally, I judge a business by what they do in the worst case scenarios, not the best. And in this case, they were bad enough I had to get an attorney, which believe me, took a ton of stress and lost sleep before I came to that decision.

Sorry for the derail of the thread! Keep showing those kits! :)

A 20" is punchier and clearer imo than the 22". Near field the sound comes off a bit faster to my ear, and that responsiveness makes it fun to play. If you like a "boomy" sound, just remove the muffling and it's there. I dug a 23" X I had the chance to play too. So if you want a bit more volume/loudness, that is the advantage the bigger diameter.
I've got a question about your rack. How tall are the two side bars in the front that attach to the legs? The product description says it comes with 1 42" curved bar (front) and 2 36" straight bars (sides) and 2 24" straight bars (i'm guessing for the legs). However, I've seen a few pics of dw racks that look like the 2 front vertical bars are different heights. See attached images. In the first image the bars look tall. I've seen images of dw racks where the side vertical bars look shorter allowing for lower crashes above the toms (more my style)...see second image. I know you can adjust the cymbal tube height, etc, but can you adjust the actual 'bar' height? Feel like I'm missing something unless they had them custom cut...

That horizontal straight side bar was cut down in the photo. The two front "main" vertical bars are equal height. I will have to grab a tape measure and get back to you.

Did the best I could with what I had... an iPod. One would think it would take better pic's, but honestly, it's probably more the user than the equipment. I'm a 34 year drummer, but never claimed to be a professional photographer.

I'll see if my 8 year old digital camera does any better.

Does the canon work better w/ or w/out the woofer?

I played around just briefly with a woofer in front of the 24 x 24, and honestly, it was very difficult to tell much difference since the shell is so deep as it is. I'm sure in a studio, the woofer would make somewhat of a difference given the internal mic's on each drum, but I personally don't think it would be a better one. The same goes for the 28. If I were using the 28 as a primary, I could definitely tune and muffle it to work great, however not with a woofer. I use the woofer on the 28 since this is a secondary effect drum at this point, oh, and it looks cool as s*%#! :-)

Owned this for about a year and sold it approximately 2 years ago and am now using Mapex Meridian Birch shells. This shell pack (4 toms & kick) is worth exactly 10x what the meridian shells are worth (4K vs 400) but by no means sounds even twice as good.

Still an absolute stunner though: DW Collectors Series Maple in Lavender to Natural Burst with black fittings. Snare is Pearl Omar Hakim (mahogany).

no pics yet.....hopefully by the end of next week......just ordered a tangerine sparkle kit. 10x8 , 12x9 , 14x12 , 22x18, with a collectors zebra wood snare. They are a demo set from a music store. Also ordering a 16x14 floor tom to go with it but that one will take a couple of months to get.

Very nice. Black or dark colored shells are extremely difficult to photograph well especially to not "blow out" detail in the background. The slight reflections on the shells gives it its glossy "alive" look.

Good job.

Absolutely. What color and sizes are you getting? I ordered mine in July '11 and they arrived in Dec. It's worth the wait. I'm looking forward to your pics.

Thank you Dennis. I've found, when taking pics of drums, no flash works best.

Heard a few days ago that my dw exotic snare should be shipped from dw to the dealer I ordered it from on May 11th. Ordered January 16th. Almost 4-months exactly. Then I'm sure it will take 4-5 days to ship from the dealer to my house...

My Performance kit just arrived last week. It's my first kit, and I'm super excited. It's set up in a room that used to be the nursery for my youngest son. That should explain the wall color and curtains. The pictures are a more recent addition to provide some inspiration. That photo of The Who is a signed Jim Marshall print. And the Hendrix photo is also a signed Jim Marshall print. That's Jimi at Monterey. And finally I've got a smiling Jerry Garcia to watch over me.

Gorgeous kit! Love the finish too...of course I'm a bit biased because my Perf Series is Dark Cherry Lacquer too :)

Congratulation on your first kit! You picked a winner IMO. I've been playing a DWPS since December and have no complaints.
